Paper Clover

Cut and Paste

Cut and Paste

If you are using paper, cut a series of circles and arrange by color. If you are using pressed leaves leave them whole and arrange by color. Begin gluing your leaves or paper onto the clover shaped backing, starting at the bottom and overlapping the shapes as you go up. Lay them in order of color for an ombre look, from light to dark or from more yellow-green to more blue-green. When the backing is completely covered, trim the edges flush with the backing.

To make this clover decor, glue paper in varying shades of green to cardboard backing shaped like a clover. Start at the bottom, and overlap the paper as you go up. Lay them in order of color for an ombre look, from light to dark or from more yellow-green to more blue-green. When the backing is completely covered, trim the edges flush with the backing. Help your kids hot glue gold ribbon for hanging.
